Fallingwater: Extraordinary Beautiful Waterfall House in Pennsylvania By Frank Lloyd Wright
The natural wonder Fallingwater is recognized as architect Frank Lloyd Wright's most acclaimed and famous works. Also known as the Edgar J. Kaufmann Sr. Residence, the house is on Bear Run at Rural Route 1 in Mill Run, Fayette County, Pennsylvania. Called "The best all-time work of American architecture" by the American Institute of Architects, and named one of "50 places of a lifetime" by National Geographic, Fallingwater is located 90 minutes south of Pittsburgh in the idyllic Laurel Highlands.
Fallingwater epitomizes man living in harmony with nature. The residence focuses on the connection between man, architecture, nature, and is designed to always feel the powerful sound of the falls, the vitality of the young forest, and the dramatic rock ledges. The structural foundation is a stone house. The interior of Fallingwater remains true to Frank Lloyd Wright's vision as well, including cantilevered desks, earth-toned built-in sofas, polished stone floors, and large casement windows which allow the outdoors to pour in.
